I like two songs from it very much - Grey River, Hayman`s Green. The album is not worse than Paul`s latest albums BTW.

I'm not sure you ever came to a conclusion.


sorry folks...i haven't been checking in for a while.

I saw a chapter in a book of little known general facts 2 years ago..it wasn't a beatle book, but it compiled the data and stats for the known dates and times of the band appearrances in hamburg, liverpool, & elsewhere in UK.  By the number of hours, Pete's time on stage with JPG far surpassed Ringo's time.

Anyhoo...is pc31 still around?  I owe him something from 2007 that I need to mail to him, but seems all of my old Private messages were deleted or went missing somehow.

In reply to Jane, yes Haymans Green is a great CD. I've gave it to some freinds without saying who the band was. they loved the whoile CD...and lved it even more, and listened closer to lyrics and evrything when i told them it was biographical and recorded by PBB.  Several tracks have made it into regular rotation on beatlesradio.com, and they'lll also play tracks on request.

Lastly, who on this board will be in Liverpool next week? I'm heading over for my first ever trip. am attending the 50th anniversary (to the day)  of the Casbah Coffee Club on 8/29. I'll be in town from 8/26 and dpearting on 9/2.

Never been over there. So feel free to drop me a line with suggestions off the beaten track. OR, if any of you will be there, let's grab a pint.

I'm going over with a few folks that regularly visit the petebest.com forum.

So...mr pc31...drop me a message with address again.

Did Pete ever play on the same bill as The Beatles after he was dumped?
He joined another local band soon after, didn't he?
Must have been pretty awkward when their paths crossed.

Yes, it happened once or twice. Have to do a research for exact venues tho.

I had a quick look through the "Mersey Beat - Beginnings of The Beatles" book and from the issue dated 6-20th Sept 1962 there's a full-page advert for Little Richard playing at the Tower Ballroom on Oct 12th. The Beatles and Lee Curtis & The Allstars are both on the same bill. On the opposite page (from the Aug 23rd issue) there's a story about Pete Best joining Lee Curtis & The Allstars, with his first gig due to take place on Sept 10th.
A later advert for the same Oct 12th Little Richard concert (from Sept 20th issue) doesn't mention Lee Curtis among the support acts - was he removed from the line-up by Epstein (who I think was promoting the gig)?
There's an advert in the Oct 18th issue for a gig in Widnes on October 22nd where The Beatles are once again meant to play with Lee Curtis & the Allstars.

i think if pete had the right promoter he could have been bigger than he was...he should have called him self pete pest too so when he knocked the boys off number 1 it would be good for a laugh..
